Review: WEST WITH GIRAFFES
I reviewed West with Giraffes by Austin's Lynda Rutledges for Lone Star Literary Life! While conducting research in the archives of the San Diego Zoo, Rutledge came across a trove of newspaper articles about two giraffes that had survived a hurricane on the deck of a freighter and a cross-country trip, from New York to California, in 1938. Inspiration struck, and the result is this charming and wondrous enchantment of a novel.
